Course summary

About This Course

This innovative new MRes programme explores the governance of digital media technologies and how to have more of the benefits of technology and less of the negatives. When urgent questions are being asked about how to control the power of companies such as Facebook, Amazon and Google, and how to deal with emergent new applications of Artificial Intelligence, the content of this programme has never been more relevant.

The programme asks students to think critically about emergent media technologies in relation to social values, culture(s), creativity, ethics, law, human rights and other governance means. Importantly, it enables students to become effective researchers with key research methods skills needed to address real world problems and issues in emergent digital media and governance.

The programme draws upon existing research strengths and is delivered first-hand by our experts. These include world-leading researchers in the ethics and governance of artificial intelligence (AI), digital creativity, digital journalism and disinformation.

This research links to two cross-university research initiatives: the Emotional AI Lab and the Network for Media and Persuasive Communication.


Addressing real world policy and technology questions around emergent digital media, this MRes will connect students to real world practices. Career opportunities span private and public sectors, international institutions, and not-for-profit organisations. The degree will be of interest to students seeking entry level positions, as well as those hoping to secure career progression or career change through educational qualifications. Specific career opportunities include:
